Subject:Please, Help Identify Artist, post 1 of 2
Posted By: John Miller Tue, Nov 13, 2018 IP:


I have this very old moldy booklet, that appear to be a kano school booklet. Is there any indication of who was drawing that booklet among the pages. Sending it on 2 post to be able to post 6 pictures among those that seems to be the most relevant on where the artist could have sign somewhere.

Thank you in advance.
